Grigor Dimitrov is one of the “outsiders” that may have a shot at the US Open title. Interesting enough the Bulgarian didn’t manage to win a single match at the Flushing Meadows so far to crash out in the openers in the last 3 years. 2014 seems to be different for Grigor that has conceded no sets in his opening match against Ryan Harrison.

The final score was 6-2 7-6 (4) 6-2.

Grigor: Happy to have my first win

After the match the world no.8 commented ‘Happy to have my first win here, it is my favorite tournament. I had more matches this time and a greater confidence. I am a different player than I was last year, that’s for sure. So for me this is just the beginning. I am happy for the win, but I am already looking forward for the rest of the tournament and see what I can do”

Next vs. Sela

Dimitrov will play against Dudi Sela in the next round. Head to head is 2-0 for Grigor that is the hot favorite to get to the third round.
